How My Online Only Financial Tracking Is Working Out

So I recently decided to take a break from tracking my finances manually and online at the same time.

Weekly Financial Check Up: April Week 1

Every Friday I post on my weekly income and expenses in an effort to keep on track of my budget for the month. By breaking down my transactions on a weekly basis I can see where my money is going and see if I am going to be able to stay under my total budget for the month. I got on a new shared phone plan and my part of the bill this month was only $25. I think I might be paying about $40 on the bill every month when it finally...
